    I have been selected to attend SLE & have accepted my offer and will be attending week two. Today I was looking to make sure I have everything I need for the week and I noticed that the packing list says you should back bed linens, but doesn't specify whether you would need regular twin sheets or XL twin sheets. Does anyone know? Thanks in advance!

    I have no idea, I was just going to bring a sleeping bag and put over wherever they want us to sleep.

    Hey I'm going to SLE too, what are you doing about the thing that says "collared shirts are appropriate when a uniform is not assigned" ?? I don't own any collared shirts but I can buy some, I have no idea what style though? Do they mean like DriFit collared golf shirts or like button up collared shirts that guys wear? I also don't know how many to buy, I will probably never wear them again after SLE. I asked someone that has already gone and she told me that she didn't bring any shirts and she only used the ones given at USMA and that she was fine, but the way she phrased it was kind of unclear so I'm still not sure.

    @cama93 USMA will provide you 2 or 3 polo shirts that you will wear when you aren't wearing pt clothes. I did not wear my shirts at all except for maybe when I arrived, but you change out of them quickly so don't stress too much about it. I do recommend, however, to bring some laundry detergent so you can wash your pt shirts as they only give you 3 to wear for 6 days. They get nasty pretty quickly, so I washed them in the sink and let them dry while I wore one and kinda cycled them out. Also another important thing to bring are loose pants and a long sleeved shirt for military day! WP does not provide those and you will need them. PM me if you have any more questions!

    I'm planning on bringing two of my cheaper DriFit golf shirts just to be on the safe side. I've also heard that I wouldn't need them, but better safe than sorry! I don't plan on bringing any button up collared shirts, though. :) What week are you going?

    My son took twin regular sheets and he was fine. He also took a small fan which he rolled his eyes about when I gave it to him. He loved the fan and so did his roomie.

    Enjoy your week! My son loved his experience and he is class of 2021 after a roller coaster ride from an injury at SLE. All is well!
